Judge J. FT Kinney, of Nebraska
City has been appointed one of the
Committee to revise and report on the
rules of the National Trotting Asso
ciation. A card from the Omaha Driving
Park Association informs us that they
will have a meeting July 2d to the 4th
in which 31,000 in different purses
will be trotted for.
OUR track was washed some; but
the Lincoln track was completely
spoi'ed and buildings washed away by
the floods. Four teams and a corps

One John Urescoue has begun the
attempt to outfast Tanner and go
forty-nine days, without food or die
trying. Chicago is the scene of the
battle and this the thirteenth day.
Some fellow that has been inter
viewed on the present unpleasantness
says, when two ride a horse, one
must ride behind (alluding to Garfield
and Conkling) but in this case there is
danger of killing the horse.
The Cass Co. Premium List now

Head fhe call for National Republi
can Convention in 1884. It is a good
time to look J over this matter now.
Perhaps some old remnants of party
pride may cause the feather-head ele

call on that occasion unnecessary.
The Beatrice Express and the Lin
coln Democrat are having a bout over
the country press. As usual the
Bucolics are ahead.
City editors,, except in towns of
from 1500 to 5000 inhabitants, don't
know much any way; especially derao
crats. The Omaha Sunday Item, a new
paper, edited by Steele & Percival,
formerly of Central City, is upon our
table. It is a social paper devoted to
news, fun, gossip and all sorts of
things. Steele is a very humerous
writer and the firm are a strong team.

Omaha Sunday Item : Ten car-loads
of live oysters passed through Omaha
last Wednesday, destined to San Fran
cisco Bay. They were in charge of
Wanberg & West, the. latter gentleman
accompanying them. A Sunday Item
reporter witnessed the process of icing
the bivalves in the refrigerator cars,
and was intormed that the enterprise
of transporting them from New York
to the Pacific, was not at all experi
mental, but an assured success. Forty
car-load3 have already gone through,
with the exception of two lost during
the embargo on freight occasioned by
the spring floods, and sixty more are
destined to follow.
Jay Gould has been to Lincoln.
He struck there suddenly and unex
pectedly from Kansas City in a special
coack. Our old friend Eli Plummer
chairman of the Board of Trade took
him out riding, showed him the town,
&c. Judge Mason and oiher anti-monopolists
tried to get him into their
carriage, but he stuck to -Eli" because
he thought Eli was a Quaker and Qua
kers always tell the truth. As Jay
meant to buy the town if he liked it, he
wanted an honest man to tll him all
about it and no lawyers and politicians.
The Lincoln fellows feel awful big
ver it, even our Directory men. Cox
& Glenn, said they guessed they would
have to go down and see "Jay" next
time he came. If Vanderbilt would
only come along to-morrow in a spec
ial, salt would sell at two cents a bar
rel in Lincoln.
A mono the expense items of the
last legislature is the one J. A. Mac
Murphy, proof reader, fifty one davs
at $3.00 per day, $153.00. When it "is
remembered that the session only last
ed forty days and that no proof reader
was appointed to the persanal knowl
edge of those there, for ten days after
the opening of the session, how the
time was figured out is a problem.
And then we use to see Mac around
town nearly every day at home. It's
not a fortune of course but the Enter
prise congratulates Mac on his good
fortune and success a3 a mathematic
ian. But the business is a fraud and
a steal from the tax payers and it's
one of the little items that make the
tens of thousand dollars paid out for
about one tenth the labor returned.
When I read the above I had some
notion of getting mad, but when I
thought over the real little petty mal
ice, jealousy and personal spite which
could induce a fellow townsman, a
newspaper man, and a uerson to whom
I have shown many kindnesses to write
such a false and unwarranted state
ment, knowing it to be untrue, I con
cluded it was not worth getting mad
ajN)r paying attention to. Nor should
I now notice it, as I have not noticed
heretofore manj dirty little personal
flings from the small fry which Piovi
dence for some unscrutable reason al
lows to edit ether newspapers here,
but that many friends have said, it
goes out to the woild as a fact and you
ought to explain it.
Knowing full well then that a lie
travels the fastest, and this, my expla
nation, will not be seen by many who
read the original lie, yet, for the bene
fit of those friends whose good opin
opinion I enjoy, and that if any wrong
has been done on 1117 account or
through ine it may be rectiGed, I ap
pend all the facts in the above case.
First let me say : I have never hnng
around the Legislature begging for
clerkships, as I have known extremely
moral young men to do; and in twelve
years that I have been around the leg
islature 1 have held just two clerk
ships, one a temporary one of 10 days
or so, during the Howe investigation
and tte other, this one. Both came to
ine unsought and unasked for. The
first because they wanteJ a very rapid
ready writer (short hand reporters be
ing scarce here then); and this time,
because printers and business men in
the legislature said they wanted a
food practical proof reader that would
not make a botch of it, as had been
done. I accepted because I knew the
need of the work, and felt proud that
it had come to me in this way.
I earned my money squarely, honest
ly, as I have every dollar I possess,
while I worked. I served 15 or 18
days and was taken sick and ooliged
to return home, much to my annoy
ance and regret. At first, expecting
that I would return in a few days, I
asked that the place be kept for me,
another person was appointed tem
porarily and afterwards an assistant,
but as L was sick over two weeks,
I practically never resumed the place.
When we came to draw our pay, I was
informed I must sign the voucher for
the whole amount. I objected strongly
but was assured positively that the
work had been done, and that all the
other clerks drew pay for the same
time. Under such circumstances I
signed it. It was approved by the
chairman of the committee, who had
been there all the time, and counter
signed by the clerk of the House, the
secretary of the Senate, the chairman
of the committee on Ways and Means
in both houses, the speaker of the
House and the president of the senate.
Besides it has to run the gauntlet of
the secretary of State, auditor and
treasurer before it can be paid. Now
if thin young man thinks I could get
all those gentleman to sign a lie for
me, he must admit I have some in
fluence with the government.
I got but a small portion of the
money and this young half-breed
featherhead knew it, because when I
came home first, I offered to give him
my place, as he had complained that
the delegation never got him a clerk
ship or anything and I tried to get it
for him, but they appointed a lady to
act and 1 could not very well ak for
her removal to make way for him.
He did not say "steal" when I made
the offer. He knew when I was
"around home" that lome one wag do
ing my work and that I was not get
ting pay for it, for I told him all the
circumstances. His statement that
tho clerks were not appointed for ten
days is false and an insult to the
"Members" of this county and else
where iu that it implies they sat there
idling 10 d;ijs and passed 110 bills;
what stupidity ? A bill passed
the first day, and we commenced read-'
ing proof in dead earnest the third day
of the session.
This young man is too ignorant of.
the commonest form of business to
act as critic in this or any other case.
Clerk? are not sworn in for 40 days as
Legislators are. They work till the
work is done; secretaries and clerks
sometimes stay there weeks after tlip
. Why does this young man, this an
gel of purity and guardian of public
funds select me as the victim, except
for a personal petty spite, to try to
make trouble and to lead ignorant or
unthinking readers to believe that he
is a great moral force and we are the

sir, and report says you make no ob

in this state and I am responsible; if I

dollar unjustly, the state can recover.
J. A. M.
In regard to the propriety of com
mittees having so many clerks, and
other useless expenses, the Herald
has called attention to that before, at
the time, and not months afterwords.
The question of "papers" for the mem
bers & fought over every session. No
newspaper man has ever asked the
legislature to take any number of pa
pers and the gentlemen of the profes
sion do not bum members to subscribe
for their paper either, after the bill is
passed. These are all matters of judg
ment the people must pass on and ap
prove or condemn. Every sensible
man knows that it is not in this way
mouej is stolen from the stale, the
guards are to strict.
When ttie state incurs debts it must
pay them whether for clerks, station
ary. or any thing else, and the remedy
is not to order these things at first; to
select some poor clerk 01 employee
and curse him for getting his pay Tor
work done in or around a legislature
never cured the evil, and is the cheap
demagoguery of weak and imbecile
minds disappointed because they could
not get some petty thing they thought
they ought to have.
If the Enterprise man had not been
too shiftless or too lazy to make out
his bill at the proper time for his lit
tie one-horse sheet, he would have got
his pay, same as the rest, and his in
limation that the members from this
county ought to pay him r'or his neg
ligence and folly is on a par with tho
impudence of his sudden molality.

are elected or until the legislature
finally adjourns; second, the joint as

BRIEFS FROM ALBANY,
Neither Conkling nor Piatt are here,
nor is Vice President Arthur, and no
rooms have been engaged for them at
All talk now is as to how an ad
journment can be carried, no hope be

they absent themselves the republi

himself in readiness to go to Albany
whenever his presence was required
there. Arthur stated he would prob
ably go to Albany tomorrow -,e-ijijg.
LATEST FR03I ALU AN ft
June 7. There is no prospect of
concentration upon candidates. One
of the leading half-breeds said to your
correspondent to-day that he would
not like to have a friend ol his pushed
too far now, for the rest would surely
combine against him. In addition to
this is the fact that every man in the
State jj-ho can rally one vote thinks
that he is quite u Jikejy to be the dark
horse as ever Garfield was. 1 Therefore
they all persist in remaining in the
race. How or when this will ei.d no
man M wise enough to foresee.
Among curiosities of current politics
are these: Gen. Logan, one of the lead
ers of the Grant men in Illinois, is not
against the president, while C. B. Far

ers, ii against him; and in Ohio Gen.

Another Letter From Georyie.
Ed. Herald: My first letter, made
up as this will be, from my diary,
ended as the whistle blew for Ogden
Utah, the western terminus of the
grandest railroad in America. Here
we parted, some for the south, others
to the uortu, but the main portion of
our party continued on toward the
setting sun, which, by the by, didn't
set to-night until 8:15. Plattsmouth
time. Eight o'clock is my bed time
As soon as our train drew up to
the platform, the good byes were
ended, and the rush for sleeping car
accommodations, rechecking baggage,
supper, and seats became the order of
the day. Papa and I captured, with
with a big greenback bait, a lower
berth on tho "Rambler," a narrow
guage sleeper on the Utah and North,
em, cosy, neat, tidy, a daisy sleeper
named for ramblers like papa and I.
As soon as we had got possession,
which papa says, is equal to nine
points in law, we struck for supper,
and topped off with strawberries and
cream, but the cruel landlord made us
pay $1.50 for our fun; oh! how I hate
landlords; they are something like the
"S. T. 1860 X" signs on rocks in ro
mantic places; their villainous charges
take away ones breath and romance
becomes reality, and even strawber
ries and cream taste of hard cash.
At 7:15 we pulled out, or. rather the
cutest little baby locomotive you ever
saw, pulled us out of Ogden. for the
tirst station this side of the. .North
Star, Dillon. "We passed Ogdeh proper
a city of about four thousand Mor
mons and two thousand Gentiles,
pleasantly situated in the shadow of a
majestic mountain crowned with
About six miles out. we halted at
the famous Hot Springs, where the
water rushes up through the crevices
of a rocky ledge, boiling hot, 160 de-
grees they say, hot enough to cook
eggs in three minutes, a good bath
house, a swimming pond containing
several acres, a good wash for half a
dollar, and a glance at the museum,
made up of resurrected stockings and
shirts, is enough to settle the future
prosperity of this interesting place
By the by. if our Plattsmouth man,
who went away and came back wear

After passing Hot Springs, ;we saw,
to mv mind a wonderful sight, tho
ereat inland Sea, the largest sea hav
ing no visible outlet in the ' world ;
"Great Salt Lake" just to our left ly
iug there, quiet, serenely beautiful,
majestically so. I can't think of ad
jectives enough to do the subject jus
tice. It was just at sunset and the
shadow of the Wasatch mountains
reached nearly to the middle of the
lake. "Church Butte" the great
mountain Island lay away to tho
south about thirty-five miles distant.
near tho centre of the lake; all around
in the dim horizon appeared moun
tain ranees, north, south, east and
west. As I looked and longed for
more daylight, I thought of the poem,
papas hobby, about summer eve:
"Where heaven's ethertal bow
Spans with bright arch the glitteriu hills below.
Why to you, mountain, turns the inuslns eye.
Whose sunbright summit mingle with the sky.
'Tla distance U-uds eiichuutineiit to the view
And robes the mountain iu its azure hue."
The Sun went down, darkness came,
and the "darkey" too, and made up
our beds; sleep, forgetful, refreshing
sleep till morn.

(rather late in the season) yet it was
the same "beautiful snow" so famill

panies and some of our neihgbors.
While looking from the car window
I saw a village of Bannack Indians,
living iu Teepees the first Indian vil
lage I have ever seen. On enquiry, I
learned that we were in Idaho Terri
tory and had been for several hours.
After breakfast, at JJlackfoot, we
steamed on rapidly over a wide valley
to "Snake River," which flows north
west to the Columbia River. It is a
deep, swift running, ugly looking,
foamy stream, with rock bound shores,
the largest river we have crossed
since leaving Omaha After dinner,
we commenced climbing the Rocky
Mountains, (our second time on this
trip) through Beaver Canon, '.until, at
three p. in., we readied the summit,
6309 feet above the level of the sea,
286 miles north of Ogden .and 200,
miles south .f Helena, pjj the bound
ary line between Idaho and Montana,
We descended the mountain down
Red Creek Canon, obtaining a fine
view of the deeply snow-clad
Rockies to our left. Near the mouth
of the canon we saw a beautiful
waterfall, a very pretty and quite a
large body of water descending per
pendicularly, about fifty feet.
At Dillon, at we bad to say
good-bye to the locomotive, a tad
parting I assure you. Aft-r supper,

She insists that it is of more impor
tance that her tauaily shall be kept in
lull health than that ahe houd avu
all tho fashionable dresses anil styles

Nebraska exchanges a single professed
anti-monopoly paper that suppporls
Conkling n his pfent light. The
Omaha Bee, the Lincoln GlciLe.the Sut
ton Register, the Seward Reporter, in
fact, every anti-monopoly editor iii the
state is denouncing the course of the
New Vorkaeuator, These papeis can
not say anything too mean aoout Conk

ertson. Conkling is called a dictator,
who has done his party more harm
than good.whei eas the latter is a model

acknowledged representative of the
New Vorfc Central rajjrpaj, ami by
that corporation has ben returnel to
the legislature for a number of years
in succession, He represents a demo

railroad which employs him. As for
Depew, he is none other than the if g
ular salaried attorney of the same cor
poration which Robertson represents
in the New York senate. Fairmont
